Remembering September 11


Tree

On Tuesday, September 11, 2001, four terrorist attacks by al-Qaeda were carried out against the United States.

Terrorists hijacked four commercial passenger airliners and intentionally crashed them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon outside Washington, D.C. The fourth plane was crashed in a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Nearly 3,000 victims from more than 70 countries—including 30 Syracuse University alumni—died in the attacks.

This event impacted not just the United States, but our global community as we sought to understand and address the issues that brought about such tragedy and violence.

In the years that have followed, September 11th has become a day not simply to remember, but to act. Since 2002, people have gathered on this day to engage in acts of community service. In 2009, September 11th officially became a National Day of Service and Remembrance. President Barack Obama hopes that this national observance will encourage people, not simply to remember those lost, but to join in service related activities that will "rekindle the spirit of unity and common purpose felt in the wake of the 2001 terror attacks."
